October 8th. Day 8. #Inktober.

I have no idea where the noises keep coming from in this room. We are the only ones in here. The curtains over the window jeep bellowing out on their own accord, and there is definitely a sound of breathing coming from in the room. And there’s a painting on the wall where the subjects eyes seem to follow us around the room. There’s an odd chill coming into the room, and all I can concentrate on is how crooked the painting is. Crooked frame on a crooked wall, and the crooked smile on the face makes it seem even more so. Most odd.

And there was a loud clatter from the next room along. We shall be there to investigate very soon…

    1. Good point, Prenin.
      I’d best not though, as I think it may just be holding the wall up! 😀

    1. Thanks, Carolina.
      Truth be told, I’ve lost the momentum with this, so my next sketch will be the last one, incorporating all of the remaining prompts! I’ve done about 16, so that ties in with the ‘half marathon’ option, so I’m happy with that! 😀
